Anotherway Now is about conversations. Thought provoking and inspiring. As part of their series on ‘brave choices’, we’ll be hearing from Meirion Jones, the journalist who helped to break the Jimmy Savile story in 2011. It goes without saying that his is an incredibly important story to tell.
Working as a top investigative producer, Meirion handed the BBC what would have been a massive scoop. He had a whole film ready for BBC2’s Newsnight, exposing Savile’s crimes, until Peter Rippon, then editor, decided to pull the programme in December 2011. It was just weeks before a celebration of Savile, including a Boxing Day ‘Fix It’ special, was broadcast on BBC1. Buy Tickets.
